Let's Hear it for the Boys

Bringing pops of colour into your wardrobe is often hard for a Fashionisto to do. Many of our guys resort to basic neutral colours like black, beige and navy to make their outfit work, but colour is important to ensure your look is unique and stands out. One great way for men to effortlessly bring some colour into their wardrobe is through their shoes! One of this year's rising trends for fall is coloured soles and laces. It's an easy way to bring colour into one’s outfit without going overboard and making it seem tacky or miss-matched. For a guy who's more colour shy, bringing in colour through your shoe choice is a great option!

This McGill Fashionisto opted for neutral coloured suede shoes but the pop of red in both the laces and the sole are really what makes these shoes cool. They're perfect because they can be worn with shorts in the summer and also look good with jeans as the cooler weather approaches us. Another great thing about these shoes is that they can easily be dressed up or down, making them very versatile for school, work or going out with friends.

Cole Haan has the greatest collection of coloured sole shoes out there. Their oxfords, wingtips and loafers all come with options of different coloured soles, allowing you to keep up with this seasons style while still being able to stick with your favourite type of shoe.  For a classic style of shoe with a pop of colour there is the LunarGrand Wingtip, which come in variety of body colours and sole colours including neon yellow, orange and pink, and also more subtle blues. Another great choice is their Air Monroe Penny loafer, which also comes in various colours for both the bodies and soles of the shoe.

Hint: Want to be a little more color adventurous? Opt for a colored shirt with a subtle pattern. like this berry, checkered button-up or a pair of colored chinos.
